Varietal: Nero D'avola

On the beautiful, sun-drenched island of Sicily in Italy, one of the most important grape varietals grown is the Nero d'Avola, a versatile fruit which is used in the production of excellent, full bodied and flavorful still wines, as well as the famous Marsala fortified wines traditionally made on the island. The Nero d'Avola grape has been cultivated on Sicily for centuries, most notably in the region of Avola from where it takes its name. However, in recent years it has also been grown in several parts of the New World, where it thrives best in hot and arid locations. The Nero d'Avola is notable for its spicy and peppery nature, and the strong plummy flavors it holds. The thick and dark skins of the fruit have a relatively high tannin and acid content, producing deep and complex wines.

Region: Sicily

For thousands of years, Sicily has been producing high quality wines of several different styles which are consistently enjoyed all over the world. The ancient Greeks may have been the first to recognize how perfect this island was for viticulture, but today a huge area of Sicily is covered in vineyards growing plenty of different grape varietals and resulting in some of Italy's finest wines. This unique wine region produces a considerable percentage of Italy's overall wines, and it isn't difficult to see how wineries have flourished on the island. With beautiful year-round sunshine, cooling sea breezes helping the grapes reach full ripeness, along with the highly fertile volcanic soil which is typical of Sicily, it should come as no surprise this is one of Europe's oldest and most productive wine regions.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
